My parents threw my brother and sister-in-law an amazing animal themed baby shower yesterday. It was a coed-Mexican-baby shower-animal-fiesta. And it was a BLAST in a tequila shot glass!
Michael and Heather are having a girl so there was more pink and than blue at the shower, but it wasn’t overdone. We stuck to animals and pastels with pink table covers and accents.
I was in charge of setting up the candy table. We wrapped a few boxes in baby wrapping paper to give height to the candy jars in the back.
The animals are baby bath mitts from the dollar store that I put on cups to decorate and give it more color.
We tried to get colorful candy that still fit in with a pastel / baby animal theme. That was a little challenging considering this is Halloween season and there are not a lot of light colors around.
The glass covered containers have pastel M&Ms and animal cookies.
My cousin was the bartender. She’s good in that she got us all drunk. Thanks Roch!
Baby Shower food
My parents hired someone they knew to cater so they could be present at the party. We had birria, rice, beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, rolls, tortillas and salsa. My mom ordered chicken from another place that I grabbed a piece of too.
Baby Shower Animal Cupcakes
No, these weren’t cupcakes made of animals. My mom’s friend made these super cute desserts with lions and tigers and
The monkey cupcake tree!
When most of the cupcakes were gone we brought out a Costco strawberry cheesecake. I’m not a big cheesecake person (prefer cake-y desserts) but this is delicious!
Once everything was set up my mom and I took a minute for a photo op.
Mi familia. I have no idea where Matt was here, probably playing video games. Matt! Busted!
For those who asked – my dress is from Charlotte Russe (yes, I shouldn’t be shopping there, let’s ignore that). I couldn’t find the same one on their site.
This Papermoon Aztec Print dress is the same cut and similar pattern.
Overall, it was a great party! I saw some fam I have’t seen in too long and everyone had way too much fun. We’ll leave it at that
Question: Ever been to a coed baby shower?
